Those guys were real nervous when they thought Kimbo was going to lose. The REF stopping that fight because his ear was bleeding? Come on, would he have done that if Kimbo's ear was bleeding?? Nope the fight seemed rigged to me. It was bad for MMA.
seem a litte one sided to me to kimbo could not defend him self in the second round james wasnt hitting him very hard but he wasnt defending himself at all if the shoe was on the other foot i think they would have stoped it

God damn awful fight, looked like king kong vs godzilla, (not in a awe inspiring city destroying way but in a "two big slow skilless brutes in a bar brawl" kind of way). Something definitely smelled fishy about the stoppage, especially as the guy who hit the floor first was kimbo after being given the win (i know it was in exhaustion but seemed a bit odd). Anyway how many times have we seen fighter rocked bad on there feet and come back into the fight. Or get knocked flat on their ass and the ref not stop the fight. I have watched alot of mma and I can't remember ever seeing a stoppage like that, especially after Kimbo appeared to be in a worse position in the 2nd. Not saying either should have been stopped but consistancy would have been nice. Now if the decision wasn't as dodgy as it seemed then something has to be done about the consistancy of referee decisions.
Better training, clearer guidelines on when to stop a fight etc. I know it eventually comes down to the refs opinion but at least lets have consistant and imformed opions from them. Since Big Jon went there seems to be a bit of a drop in standards or could just be my impression.

I have been watching the fights for a while now on PayPerView. And i must say i was so glad i didnt reach into my wallet for this fight. Slice is a power hitter, but his defense and ground game are one to be ashamed of. If i wanted to watch a circus fight i would have turned on a WWF fight. JT still had some fight left in him, both fighters were tired and ready to call it a day. But I think it could have came back. Im upset i wasted my time watching that fight

The Carano/Young fight was one of the better fights of the night. Gina didn't do as well as I had hoped but it was a better fight than Kimbo's.

It was way better than the Kimbo fight, like the difference in skill between Kimbo and any top 10 HW fighter.
